Festival of the Forks, Albion Michigan
Legend of The Festival of the Forks,
Albion, Michigan

The Festival of the Forks occurs in Albion Michigan on the third weekend of September.

The purpose of the festival is “To celebrate the historic heritage and rich diversity of Albion Michigan.”

At first the Festival was held in October but was later changed to the third weekend of September because of the more pleasant weather. The name, “Festival of the Forks” was chosen to symbolize the founding of the community on the forks of the Kalamazoo River.

The morning parade for the Festival of the Forks is a favorite with schools, bands, fire trucks and politicians marching. After the parade, the vendors have booths on Superior Street, and in the Farmer’s Market area (Stoffer Plaza) between Superior Street and the Kalamazoo River.

here is a variety of ethnic foods available, and live music from several venues throughout the day.

This art was created by Maggie LaNoue in the 1980’s when the Festival was occurring in October when people would wear coats to attend the event. In the art, there is a sign with an H for the hospital, and a mailbox. Much is the same today, as it was when this art was done.
